    Sorry but your laptop is all BGA and that means everything important like the CPU and GPU are both soldered on to the motherboard. They cannot be replaced or upgraded. Your only option is to sell the laptop and upgrade to a new laptop.

    Just the cost of buying BGA laptops. :(

    If you have Thunderbolt 3 you could look into doing an E GPU with minimal performance loss on the mid range cards like the 1060 and that would offer you a healthy bump. The downside is the cost of the dock itself can be quite expensive at the moment and you are tethered to it. But if you only game at home you can plug in at home and still have your 970m for the road.

    I thought that using Thunderbolt 3 is not that convenient and it is still better to buy new laptop for saving. GTX 970 is already good for gaming unless if he wants to do some 4K gaming.
